Most importantly for the Ruri-Teens, Spiderweb offers a free clothing closet. Families and individuals are allowed to walk in and acquire any amount of clothing they need. This can be extremely helpful to those going through unexpected tragedies and those who need a little help to get them back on their feet.
One reason the Ruri-Teens decided to choose to donate to Spiderweb is because of the potential the project has to continue year-round. There are always people in need of clothing. So many students are fortunate enough to own adequate amounts of clothing to not only clothe themselves, but also to have a variety of options in choosing what they wear. Students who own clothing that is no longer worn are encouraged to donate these articles to the library to be brought to Spiderweb. Not only do student contributions help those in need, this offers the opportunity to easily clear out closets.
Hopefully, with the donations received, the drive will continue for years to help those in need. Ruri-Teens have hung up a multitude of posters and flyers, convincing students to donate their gently used clothing to Spiderweb. In the library sits a box so large that, when filled with clothing, could clothe multiple families. All that’s left now is to fill that box!
